A black tutu made for my daughter Mia for her birthday.
I spent 3 evenings ruffling what seemed like miles and miles of tulle, the bloody stuff was everywhere! Mia had no idea i was making it and her face was a picture when i pulled it out of my wardrobe and suggested i might wear it myself for the day. She wore it out to the shopping centre and received many admiring glances ;) There was a whole lot of twirling going on and Heidi has insisted i make her one too, i think it may be a scaled down version though, not sure i could ruffle that much tulle again so soon.
4 metres of black nylon tulle, 1 metre of red ribbon, 20cm of cotton/elastane, elastic
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
